ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Over 65 percent of Americans say that work is their number one source of stress. How you can spot the signs of job burnout.
Overworked, underpaid and unappreciated. Over one-third of Americans say these are reasons that contribute to their chronic work stress.
So how can you spot the difference between typical work stress and burnout?
Take note of your morning habits. Employees who are overwhelmed tend to hit the snooze button more often. Over 12 percent of Americans admit that sleepiness made them late to work.
Arguing with your spouse? It’s a good indication you might need a break from work, not from your spouse. Disgruntled employees tend to be more emotionally and mentally absent at home.
If you feel like you are struggling or overwhelmed with even the smallest tasks, you could benefit from a little meditation. Companies like Google and the Huffington Post offer their employees mindfulness stress reduction classes to keep them on track.
Take action with the things you can control like sending an email or making the first phone call!
When stress persists, talk to your boss to find out if there’s any additional support available. Being upfront with work-related issues can help you keep your stress in check.
